Each week, The Observer releases an episode in its video series, Patron Saints. This series spotlights performing-arts venues around town and the patrons who donate to them.
Sarasota Orchestra Board of Directors Chairwoman Anne Folsom Smith was an interior designer who joined the board more than 20 years ago because she wanted to get involved with something more than design. She does it because she believes the more you give, the more you get.
